I've seen this book referenced quite often. Anyone familiar with it?

Jon,

Yes, it's an excellent reference. It contains advanced undergraduate & graduate level experiments; very detaled as you'd expect & well-written.

This book has experiments on beta spectrometry, dielectric constants for gases, apparatus for varifying Richardson's equation (thermionic emission), etc. , etc.

If you have any specific questions, just ask. Yes, it sure is a good book.

Warm Regards,

TIM

Tim,

Thanks for the report. I've gone ahead and ordered a copy. Went for the second edition.
